My G-Grandfather came over from Prussa in the 1860's. His first wife was Hazel his 2nd, whom he married in the states, was Lillian (don't know their Last names). He had 5 children with Hazel.
George Hershal 1901-1972 (gfather)
Harold 1897-1976
There is a Family legend that jacobs father was a officer in Napoleon's army by the name of Adolf Von Thielman and the family name was changed to make it easier for Jacobs boss to pronounce.
Can Anyone add to this for me?
